Best paved driveways
It is a fact that on the south coast, Cornerstone has installed more driveways, patios and paths than any other paving company using its own contractors, without need for other labour force.
Since the begining of October 2008, a submission for Planning Permission may be required for impermeable surfaces like Tarmac, Concrete, and Block Paving. The aim of this regulation is to prevent stormwater drains, and eventually the rivers, from being unnecessarily overfilled during periods of heavy rainfall due to overdevelopment. The provisions apply to the area between the front of the house and the road if the area is over 5 square metres. Designing and installing of driveways represents a large proportion of the work Cornerstone. They design and install top quality driveways using a variety of techniques including blocked paving, pattern imprinted concrete and resin bonding.
Imprinted concrete driveways are covered by 10 year guarantee, and are a relatively new type of driveway which provides the strength and durability of concrete whilst giving the impression of a typical paved driveway. Among the benefits of this type of driveways include their near eradication of the need for weeding. The reason behind this is fact that there the driveway surface is completely sealed and therefore provides nowhere for weeds to take root.
Resin bonded driveways are a low cost option. Resin bonded driveways can even be laid over existing hard standing areas like concrete, tarmac or even paving slabs, and for this reason can be laid extremely quickly. The main benefit for this king of driveways is that you don't need a planning permission as it is only a surface dressing. They are also very economical as no excavation is required, with minimum inconvenience and there are unlimited design opportunities.
Paved driveways are the most appreciated by costumers. Cornerstone has been installing block paved driveways for more than 15 years and they come with a 5 year guarantee. The paved driveways come in a variety of different styles to choose from, can completely transform any courtyard. The main steps in the process of paved driveways are as follows: the contractors dig out an average depth of 200mm, then they install an average depth of 100mm Type-1 Roadstone and the blocks are then laid on a 50mm compacted sand screed.
The beneficiaries are advised to have the newly paved area sealed with a specially formulated paving sealer that will help to encapsulate the colour, and will also make it easier for the removal of stains. It will also help slow down the onset of weed growth and will prevent water seeping under the blocks, therefore helping prevent sinkage. Paved driveways are probably the best looking driveways out there.
